Ashby refuses to concede Welling's league title chances

Welling United assistant manager Barry Ashby believes the race for the Blue Square Bet South title will be between Woking, Dartford and his side.

The Wings are six points behind leaders Woking having played a game more, and level with Dartford in second place.

Ashby told BBC Radio Kent: "There are still so many games to go. There's been some iffy results from us all recently.

"It's going to be tough. We're not going to give up on anything. We're going to push Woking all of the way."

After leading the pack earlier in the season, Welling have slipped into the playoff zone but five wins from six have boosted their prospects of automatic promotion.

The Wings' clash with Woking this Saturday is likely have a large bearing on the destination of the title, although Dartford have two games in hand over Welling.

Former Gillingham defender Ashby said his side had nothing to fear.

"We'll go in with confidence. We're going on a really good run at the minute," said the Welling assistant.

"We know it's going to be a tough game. Woking are top of the table for a reason.

"We know it'll be difficult but I can guarantee everybody wants to get promotion.

"It's going to take a hell of an effort for somebody to get that top spot. This league is a tough league and nobody gives you easy games."
